Does anyone know the incantation(s) to build a 64bit libtiff on Solaris 8?

I ran "configure -target=sparc64-sun-solaris8", which didn't do all I expected. I had to add "-m64 -D__LP64__" to the Makefile (the COPTS macro) to get it to build a 64bit library.

However it still doesn't work; it's failing deep in the library somewhere trying to read the directory in the image files. Building a 32bit version works fine (of course!).

thanks in advance

PS If anyone has experience with 64bit gdb, I'd like to hear from you! I can't get it to work either.
